Parish Conferences


The heart & soul of St. Vincent de Paul is the Parish Conference. Through their local Church, Vincentians make the traditional "home visit" to provide food and other types of assistance.      "No act of charity is foreign to the Society."

Vincentians give freely of themselves to grow spiritually through service to others, giving neighbor-to-neighbor assistance to persons in need. Contact the Church in your zip code for help - or to volunteer as a Vincentian.
